Makcim Biography

Just like the vodka from his birthplace, Moscow-born Dutch-resident MAKCIM always fuels the party spirit with his intoxicating and powerful sets, mixing house and techno to create refreshingly deep and sexy grooves. And when he’s not inspiring the clubbing crowds from the vinyl decks, you’ll find him releasing quality tunes on Amsterdam imprint Remote Area, together with his music partner-in-crime, Managemend.

A colourful childhood in Russia, painted with the sounds of Joy Division, Talking Heads, Depeche Mode, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Blondie as well as jazz greats Miles Davis and Marcus Miller, meant that by the time MAKCIM moved to the Netherlands, at the age of 12, he knew music was going to be a huge part of his life.

By 1996, inspired by the house scene, he started buying records each week and by 1999 at the age of 20, he got his first residency in a bar in Eindhoven. At the same time he began organising illegal parties and together with friends and founded a new platform called ‘Minimal Eindhoven’ which became fundamental to the Dutch house & techno scene.

In 2008, Amsterdam imprint, Remote Area, welcomed MAKCIM together with his music partner in crime, Managemend (aka Roel van Otterdijk), into the fold with the release of their first EP “Lithe”. Their collaborative genius was a powerful mix, blending MAKCIM’s perfection for cool and funky rhythms with Managemend’s brilliance for creating chunky, deep, soulful loops. It’s therefore no surprise that they’ve since been regular guests on the label with their 2nd EP ‘Red Aglet’ and track “Hid” released on the label’s debut album in 2009, then again in 2010 with the release of their EPs “Boyism” and “Fur Cage”.

Each release unique, but always taking you on a quality sound journey to the deeper, funkier side of techhouse life with sexed up steamy vocal snippets and chunky rolling rhythms which continue to tick all the right boxes for the DJ likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Zip, Richie Hawtin, Luciano, Paco Osuna, Riva Starr, Ilario Alicante, Noir, 2000 and One….

And now, when MAKCIM is not in the studio with neighbour, friend and production partners Managemend or Levi Verspeek crafting new tunes and perfecting their ‘soon to happen’ live set – he can be seen and heard spinning vinyl at Berlin’s Watergate, Club der Visionaere and Arena club as well as in party hotspots across New York, Moscow, Munich and Copenhagen.

Closer to home you’ll find him moving the Dutch clubbing crowds with long and sexy sets at venues such as Melkweg, Studio K, Paradiso, Studio 80 and Trouw, as well as being a regular at festival greats such as Lowlands, Awakenings, Voltt, 5 Days Off, Static, Innercity, Loveland, Buiten Westen, Mysteryland and Welcome to the Future Festival.

With new releases on Raum Musik and gigs in Ibiza, Paris, Milaan and Berlin in the pipeline, it’s as clear as vodka that if you want to get funked up, then MAKCIM will mix you a perfect cocktail of house and techno tunes for deep and long all night party play.
